It’s picture, and YouTube, perfect.
YouTuber Emma Chamberlain has opened up her gorgeous home to Architectural Digest, showing off the dazzling surroundings in which she lives.
The internet sensation, who boasts 11.8 million followers on YouTube alone, purchased the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom California house in June 2021 for $4.3 million.
Spanning more than 4,440 square feet, Chamberlain, 21, spent the past year renovating the home to her liking.
Standing in the mountains above Beverly Hills, Chamberlain designed the home as a “chill, laid-back vibe,” with luxury in mind, AD explains, adding that it provides an “earthy-with-a-twist ambience.”
“I work from home, so I wanted to create something completely personal and comfortable,” Chamberlain told the magazine. “I brought in references from many decades and design eras, and I tried to meld them into something that feels not only cohesive but new. It wasn’t about following the rules or sticking to one aesthetic. I tried to approach it all with a lightheartedness and an open mind.”
Built in 1955, Chamberlain said the home had a “summer camp” feel when she bought it, which led her to lead with that theme.
The residence was designed in collaboration with Ashley Drost and Marie Trohman of Proem Studio.
“We described it as ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ meets ‘Troop Beverly Hills,’” she said.
“I’m a mood board type of girl. I scoured every corner on the internet, every weird, deep hole on Pinterest,” she added. “I find inspiration for the home everywhere, the same as fashion. It’s all one in my mind.”
In 2019, Time Magazine placed Chamberlain on its 2019 list of the 25 Most Influential People on the Internet.
